Sydnt Volvox Webcam
Korean camera sensor experts Sydnt have revealed their Volvox (Korean PDF) camera and storage hybrid. The developer says its cameras are now small enough that it can now incorporate a webcam into a USB jump drive without adding significant bulk: sharing the same USB connector, the Volvox can hold as much as 2GB of flash memory while still providing a 1.3-megapixel camera that supports a full 30 frames per second in video mode. It can plug directly into the side of a computer for storage purposes but also ships with an adjustable neck attachment that places the camera at the user's eye level. No pricing is available, but the Volvox can be had in black or silver trim in 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB versions.
